Cowboy Jack

There was a lonely cowboy
With a heart so brave and true
And he learned to love a maiden
With eyes of heavens own blue

They learned to love each other
And had named their wedding day
When a quarrel came between them
And Jack he rode away

He joined a band of cowboys
And tried to forget his name
But out on the lonely prairie
She waits for him the same

Your sweetheart waits for you Jack
Your sweetheart waits for you
Out on the lonely prairie
Your sweetheart waits for you

One night as work was finished
Just at the close of day
Someone said sing a song Jack
I will drive our cares away

As Jack began his singing
His thoughts they wondered back
And he sang about a maiden
Who waited for her Jack

He left the ranch next morning
Breathing his sweethearts name
He would go and ask forgiveness
For he knew he was to blame

But when he reached the prairie
He found a new made mound
And his comrades told him
They’d laid his loved one down

They said as she was dying
She breathed her sweetheart’s name
And with her last breath told them
To tell him when he came

Your sweetheart waits for you Jack
Your sweetheart waits for you
Out on the lonely prairie
Under the skies of blue
